Tenet No. 5 (of 40) from A Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders

“5.   The cost of … restoration is so great, and the result so uncertain, that we should make every effort to prevent the damage in the first place.  Although skillful work may help, all healing depends ultimately on the self-renewing powers of nature.  Our task is to understand and cooperate with those powers as fully as we can.”
